Canadian Stakes Victory for Jackson Relative

Ridgemont Highlands’ triple Grade 1 winning sire Jackson, whose daughter Jacko’s Boy claimed her fifth career win when victorious at Turffontein on Saturday, gained a further boost to his stellar pedigree when Rideforthecause took an impressive 4 length victory in the Grade 2 Canadian Stakes at Woodbine on Saturday.

Talented four-year-old filly Rideforthecause (Candy Ride) claimed her biggest win to date on Saturday, taking victory in the Grade 2 Canadian Stakes at Woodbine Racetrack.

Stepping up to graded action for the first time in the CA$286,000 feature, Rideforthecause duly rolled to a four-length victory at 22-1 odds.

The filly, piloted by David Moran, was near the back of the pack through the early running of the Filly and Mare turf event conducted at about 1 1/8 miles, and rallied down the outside. She took over from 4-5 favorite Cambier Parc midway down the stretch and continued on to a final time of 1:45 on firm turf.

Rideforthecause wins the Grade 2 Canadian Stakes

Rideforthecause, now a four time winner from ten starts, is out of the Giant’s Causeway mare Danceforthecause. The latter’s fourth dam is the legendary broodmare No Class – with the latter also ranking as the fourth dam of G1 Cape Derby/G1 Daily News 2000/G1 Champions Cup winner Jackson.

Ridgemont Highlands stallion Jackson, one of the very best sons of top South African sire Dynasty, enjoyed a fine season in 2019-2020 where his flagbearers included G3 Poinsettia Stakes/G3 Vasco Da Gama, Prix du Cap winner Pretty Young Thing and Winter Solstice Stormsvlei Stakes 1-2 finishers Eva Eileen and Flame Tree.
